District 9
    #11254040 - 10/15/09 05:22 PM (8 years, 4 months ago)

Just finished watching it and thought while it was excellently produced there was just something about it that I cannot put my finger on that made me really not enjoy it.

I'm going to have to think through the theme of the movie and perhaps watch it again to discover why.

What did you guys make of it?

Did they segregate themselves from the aliens? Typical humans

Yes they did. But I think what bothered me was the whole 'evil cooperation' and class structure theme. Again, I will have to think and analyse it more to come to a proper conclusion.

I loved it at the beginning because the premise and atmosphere they established were fantastic.
They then proceeded to create a totally average action-sci-fi movie within this wonderful atmosphere. :facepalm:

Well I haven't seen it but it makes sense, based on what I've heard. Were the aliens portrayed as warlike beings as usual or were the humans the fuck ups

Okay here's why the movie sucked:

1. How can we understand the aliens?
2. Why didn't we just fly a couple of the aliens up to their ship via helicopter or something.
3. Why does the juice that powers the escape pod turn the extremely annoying accented guy into an alien?

The movie didn't make sense, and it was not enjoyable.

Unorganized savages. I agree with laserpig's opinion. What I thought in the beginning would be the start of a great sociological film turned into typical sci-fi action. It wasn't a bad movie though by any means.

It wouldn't be epic unless there was 9 other threads.
